  • Quick histories of punk rock often highlight the immortal class of 1977 (Pistols, Clash, Ramones) and then jump to the crossover success of Nirvana and Green Day in the 90s. That's entirely misleading, overlooking an multitude of amazing punk and post-punk albums in between, but there's a reason "Dookie" remains such a landmark. For those well-versed in Fugazi, the Replacements and everything in between, punk never went anywhere. But for major labels and the music biz at large, "Dookie" forced the powers that be to once again pay attention to punk rock.

  • San Francisco may have the rock clubs, but many of the region’s most famous bands formed on the city’s outskirts. The Grateful Dead congealed on the Peninsula, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Green Day got their starts in the East Bay, and Huey Lewis put a Mill Valley bar on the cover of his band’s most famous album.

    Our compilation of Bay Area rock landmarks above follows our previous take on S.F. landmarks.
